Gorgeous orange body with a soapy white head. Lingering aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, cantaloupe, really fruity with some dank aromas too. Flavor is terrific. Hops come through in a big way with all of the fruity hop flavors playing off of each other, but the kicker is a great toasty malt flavor. It sneaks in just enough to balance this one out nicely, but it is definitely a tremendously hoppy and bitter DIPA. Drinks great too, with a nice light body, but huge flavor. Damn this is good.

Hands down one of the best beers I've ever had, stands up right next to Heady in it's own right (IMVHO).

Only down side is the limited availability of this beer, even to a Vermonter who lives with-in 20 miles of the brewery.

I would strive to obtain this over Heady as it is a must-try, for me at least.

Perfect. Great balance of ipa with frontal hops no bitter, nice lace in glass.

From a bomber in trade

Pale yellow to light apricot color-- medium head

Aroma is citrus- light apricot, pineapple, and orange, with piney dank hops.

Flavors are similar and very well integrated. What really gets you right away is the creamy-factor!
Lush full mouth feel with good carbonation, almost no discernible malt (just the way I like it), and a mildly bitter finish.

Overall, well, the 5 speaks for itself. Right up their with Heady and HF-several, but Abner comes to mind.

Sample from a 22oz bottle. Thanks Clint for sharing!

The aroma wasn't as good as I anticipated. I found it a little grassy. But the flavor was fantastic!

I really enjoyed this beer.
